Kitchen in the Park Forest House Museum

Kitchen: Our 1950s kitchen has the original metal cabinets, a 1947 GE Refrigerator, a Sunbeam Mixmaster, canisters, and cookbooks. You get to open drawers and cabinets and the fridge to get a blast from the past in every one.  In our new location, we do not have a built in pantry closet, but we do have a freestanding one with the same display items.
